for independence, our constitution, bill of rights, and why would they think that? and how is it that america today has allowed the aclu step-by-step to make this into a very secular nation where it's almost a crime to even have an expression of judeo-christian belief in a school or in the public square, or as i'm arguing, the aclu is about to move in to the churches to criminalize christianity. i think that's where it's ultimately headed. when i started researching "bad samaritans," i realized that the foundation of the aclu was in radical socialism and even communism. the founders, some of the original board members were writing books like soviet-american. it had its origin, the aclu, in the end of world war i and the very sabbaticals who opposed going into the military, including the founder of the organization itself. now, the evolution of the aclu was to embrace these socialists radical principles. some of the members being communists. outright communist. i document it fully in the book, and the goal was to attack america, to transfer him a -- transom america into a socialist state. to do that

. tonight's lead, the dream lives on 50 years after dr. martin luther king jr. inspired the nation. america's first african-american president reminded us -- reminded all of us that today's economic inequities mean there's still much more work to do. i was there for the day's commemoration as some 100,000 people gathered to hear more than 200 speakers. everyone from former presidents, carter and clinton, to activists and civil rights leaders. at points there was a spontaneous song. >> i don't know about you, b bbu but -- ♪ i woke up with my mind stayed on freedom ♪ >> and even celebrities joined in echoing dr. king's words. >> and as the bells toll today at 3:00, let us ask ourselves how will the dream live on in me and you and all of us? >> and those bells did toll. on the national mall and all over the country, they rang to commemorate dr. king's call to let freedom ring. and then on the very same steps from which dr. king addressed the country decades earlier, president obama brought the point of today home. today is not just about commemorating the dream, but advancing it. because t

to as the forgotten war. because most all of the world knew about the importance of america being involved in saving emocracy in world war ii and vietnam. good or bad, people knew people that went there. but somehow in the middle of that, no one really missed us or knew where korea was or didn't appear that there was too much concern. d when we did return, unlike the vietnam veterans who really unfairly had been treated so unkind, fortunately for us, we were never missed except by our family and friends, people never they here we were and to us. weren't as kind veterans turned out from all over. comrades that were part of the 20 countries that were part of the united nations. and when north koreans invaded south korea, those of us who were called to go to south korea to defend them, we were going to a country that we never knew to fight for a people that we never met, for causes that were not well known. having said all of that, at the conclusion, and the war has never really been called a war, it still is a division between these people, but as a result of the united states and united nations' effo
, and dealing with assistance to those in america, the richest country on the face of the earth, who are going hungry, a large number of whom are children who live in america. the committee on agriculture passed out a bipartisan bill in the last congress and it was never brought before my republican friends. this year the committee also passed out a bipartisan bill that was brought to this floor. it could have and should have been passed with a bipartisan vote. not because i agreed with all of it, but because it was appropriate to have a bill to go to conference with on this important subject. our republican friends added three amendments which we harmful to clearly those in need in america. as a result, we didn't vote for it, but that's not why it failed, mr. speaker. it failed because 62 republicans voted against the bill reported out with every republican voting in committee for it. one was mr. lucas, the chairman of the committee observed, it apparently wasn't good enough for those 62 republicans. compromise seems very difficult for some people in this house. but i again remind us all it
130 hijackings in america. sometimes at a rate of more than one a week. sometimes two a day. i was looking for a story i could explore more deeply. i was looking for people who have been fugitives from years after hijacking planes. i was looking at the list of people who are still on the run, and it was pretty much an all-male crew. sunday i saw this one woman's name, cathy kerkow, a 21 year woman from small town in oregon. i was just intrigued. i thought what would make this 20 year old woman turned her back on everything she had ever known to hijack a plane to a foreign country and never be able to come home again? so that kind became a four-year obsession for me, a long journey to tell that story. i'm going to start by telling not about her story and the story of her accomplice, a more about the general history of hijacking in america. as she started in 1961 was the first hijacking in america, may 1, 1961. a cuban exile with out a statement on the miami to key west flight and told the pilot that he wanted to go to havana to warn the dell cast about an assassination attempt.
it be in america there was a sting. now that you understand you have more of a dialogue. realistically we stopped talking to our young people. hopefully it open to dialogue to take time and talk to her children. and listen to them and start by saying something like hello or giving a smile. i always say on a personal note it's an eye-opener and something we need to continue to try to embrace in our children and our community because it starts with us. thank you. >> thank you very much. >> i just want to say that that synergy i spoke of having all these organizations and these institutions all have to work together. i think that is key and perhaps your organization could be the one that starts the ball rolling and starts the communication but i think that does have to happen. >> as long as we can get some cards from you and you could give us some support that would be great. >> if i could add to that quickly also. one common thread through all of our work is we look to history and different kinds of history to find instances of structural oppression, the structural violence and racism and responses
targets were in the arab world and in africa, there could also be attacks in europe or north america. now, if it is a global travel alert, then it isn't really a travel, but rather an existence alert. the public announcement had all the hallmarks of the old color-coded alerts of the bush era. threatening enough to make people anxious and vague enough to give them little to do about it. but what about al qaeda? well, al qaeda central, the organization centered in afghanistan and pakistan, is in fact battered and broke. but the idea of al qaeda remains vibrant in some other places. not, as it turns out, in the great hot beds of islamic radicalism such as saudi arabia, but rather in places where the government is so weak it simply cannot control its own territory. yemen, somalia, mali, northern nigeria. so what kind of strategy should the united states pursue against these very small groups in very weak states? there are three possible paths. the first would be a more full bore counterinsurgency strategy, the kind that general david petraeus executed in iraq and to a lesser degree in afghani
